To be honest, this sounds like you have a tire rubbing somewhere. Venturing a guess, Since it only does this when you are turning I would assume it is the front end so check the tires, especially if your using large tires or applied a lift kit of some type. Based on your description of what the noise is, when it occurs and the recording you provided I honestly believe this is a tire rubbing on the plastic wheel well liner on one of the sides of the vehicle. If this is something that started after you used the vehicle for a while after the conversion to the Quad drive you will want to look at all your components to make sure you haven't got a loose or missing bolt or bad ball joint allowing the wheel to shift position when turning. I assume you converted to Quad Drive to do some 4 wheeling and this is a common problem in vehicles used in that. Good Luck.

Wheel initally with start making a washing machine noise or grinding sound when doing sharp turns the opposite of the wheel side as the outer race will generally go bad first. You may also notice the rim heating up due to friction. Grinding at low speed or a growling sound would dictate an inspection.

1999 GMC Suburban 2500: There is a grinding sound and a seize in the front tires when I make a sharp turn left or right at slow speed...Exp. pulling into a parking spot. What could it be?


Sounds like the truck is in 4 wheel drive, try turning the front driveshaft, it should turn freely if it is in 2wd otherwise you may have transfercase problem or your front diff is locked in

Bad axle


A bad axle will make a continuous clicking or clunking sound when making a sharp turn (left or right), but if they are really worn out it would not have to be a sharp turn for them to make that noise.

The front right tire clicks when driving. the speed of the clicking increases as speed of the car increases. what is causing the clicking sound?


possibly a cv joint is going or perhaps a wheel bearing. any other symptoms ? in a parking lot turn the wheel all the way to the right and drive slowly in a circle and listen for a clicking sound... then turn it to the left and repeat. make sure it's an empty parking lot and you don't hit anything.

Scraping sound at very low speed (5MPH)


I have personally seen a lot of wheel bearings go bad on these vehicles. If you hear the noise get more pronounced when turning left, the right front (passenger side) bearing is most likely the culprit- if turning right, it would be the left front (driver side) bearing.

Hope this is helpful!!

GRINDING IN FRONT END


This sounds like a major problem. I had the same issue with a different truck. I will tell you in all honesty that the front-end is blown. The noise will continue to get worse. Soon it will occur driving in a straight line. The carrier bearings are symptomatic of failure. Its safe to drive on for a while, but in the long run you can eventually snap the front end. But before you go on rebuilding or selling the vehicle drain the fluid and replace with new and see if the problem goes away after driving 8-15 times in a flat parking lot doing figure-eights.
